Baudin, F. (1996): Enregistrement de l'evenement anoxique Aptien inferieur dans les facies peritidaux du Guyot Resolution (Ocean Pacifique NW) Record of the early Aptian oceanic anoxic event in the peritidal facies of Resolution Guyot, NW Pacific Ocean. Gauthier-Villars, Montrouge, France, Comptes Rendus de l'Academie des Sciences, Serie II. Sciences de la Terre et des Planetes, 323 (3), 221-228, georefid:1997-006368

Lithological, sedimentological and organic geochemical data of Lower Aptian sediments from Site 866, drilled during ODP leg 143, are presented. Several organic-matter-rich levels are described within the shallow-water carbonate platform series. The origin of organic matter is mainly algal and/or bacterial and its richness may reach 34% TOC. These shallow-water organic-matter-rich levels are comparable to the coeval mid-water black shales in the Pacific. They are possibly correlated to the Early Aptian oceanic anoxic event, but their conditions of disposition are open to discussion.
